Snake Strikes of Yin-Style Bagua

I found this fantastic demonstration by an old Bagua master and am excited to share it. One of the posts in the comments has this description:

--The guy is Dr. Xie Peiqi and was the last lineage holder of Yin Style Bagua. He died in 2003. His DVDs are available at --

Indeed, the website above looks to be an excellent resource for internal martial artists and for the history and understanding of Yin-Style Bagua.
The techniques shown in the video will appear familiar to Aikido and Jujitsu people, but note how the entry into these techniques differs than in a Japanese system. Also, if you look closely on a few you will see a few pressure-point strikes, I saw some to the neck in particulear.
We will have more posts on Bagua Kung-Fu coming soon, it is a deep, deep field of study in an obscure but re-emerging internal martial art.

Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need
some help from an established blog. Is it very difficult to set
up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking
about setting up my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions? With thanks

Incredible! This blog looks exactly like my old one!

It's on a totally different topic but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Great choice of colors!

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems
as though you relied on the video to make your
point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to
your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?
